She is:Mrs. J. '•C. Sundo, above. Her son is-the ll1 matter 31-yoar-old Earl Sande, dean of I American riders who has earned mere than S70.00.0 Ihis season by Miccoisli;Uy piloting Gallant Fox and oilier thoroughbreds to innny viclorics. Mrs. Sande once held hopes that her .son would became n school 'teacher. Long ago. however, she decided that the Earl was rloiiu: pietiy well in the jockey business. Joff may lie the first heavyweight j champion ever to bring a protege \i|i to seiious lighting class. Most of Ihu olliers have Iricd it and failed. Some of the ex-champs' iircteges have been nil too umus- 1:15. think Jim Corbctt had perhaps ll'.e funniest protege known to the .Science of Slap. Somewhere Jim picked up an English heavyweight named Tom Cowler. Jiui lirought his man along, instri'diug him carefully in vlngcraft. ami finally matched Tom with Jack Dillon. Cowler proved prone tn the- British hin-izoiital heavyweight tradition, despite all of Jim's masterminding in his corner. It i-cems that while Coibett was Ihinking.

Bob Fit/simmons' fondest circuin was that he would live to see the day his son. Young Bob. would be crowned as heavyweight, champion. Young Bob was crowned, hut not in the manner Ruby Bob had hoped for. Jacl; Johnson gave several aspiring heavyweights the benefit of his cleverness, but somehow the boys never managed to click. One of them was George Godfrey. John L: Sullivan. Jess Wlllard nnd Gene Tnnney harl no prolcgcs. When Sullivan quit the ring he left his own great name to posterity and let it go at that. After Jess had the bankroll, fighting became to him distasteful. And Tunney—well.

The Atlanta Crackeis again took advantage of their series with the orphan and lowly Rears of Mobile to win a game, 1 to 6. The Bears contributed live errors to their downfall while cuthittinsc the Crackers. Blethen was the winning hurier.
